The duty to consult and accommodate is a cornerstone in reconciling the relationship between the Crown and Indigenous peoples. The law of consultation and accommodation remains in a state of flux, especially in light of recent advancements towards the Canadian implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. To effectively carry out consultation and accommodation, clarification on the expectations and obligations of all stakeholders is required. For people working directly or indirectly in this area, keeping abreast of changes and developments is essential; and a better understanding of current issues, strategies, perspectives and remedies will positively enable actions in the direction of reconciliation.

This two-day conference will provide you with an overview and analysis of key recent developments and their practical implications, from a variety of relevant and practical perspectives. Our expert faculty will provide clarity with respect to stakeholders’ duties and will discuss current issues, strategies and remedies, as well as practical examples from recent experience.
